It cefrtainly seems as though there should be ho trflUble in carrying sUeh & project at any efeetioh when the facts ai'e fairly presented. AlgOha is behind many of her neighbors in this matter of a public library. MasOh City ahd Fort Dodge are larger, ahd, of course, not fair comparisons, but both have lai*ge and well established libraries. But Rock Rapids, Estherville, and towns of that size are smaller if attythifig, Rock Rapids raised $5.000 n, year ago to put ihto such an histitU' tiom Bancroft our next door neigh- borils.hhead of Algona in this matter; The fine library presented by the historian, George Bancroft, is kept open by a library association, and Mark Sands is arranging in Chicago to add to it some 300 volumes. To establish a public library and reading room in Algona at the outside limit of taxation, would cost, as Col. Gatch shows, only $1 on every $3,000 or $4,000 of property. That is a small expense to be borne for the . . Hie Wftfrement of law.

About Christmas time, dowft neat Webster City, neighboring farmers had each a fine brood of turkeys fattening for their harvest. The birds, according %o the local report, foreseeing the danger made themselves scarce. At last one brood was traced and the children of Mr. (Joolt drove them home, while Mr. Harris, his neighbor, failed to find the other, and deciding that it Was his brood that had been found, appealed td 'Squire Biggs to replevin the Christmas dinner. Judge Hyatt and Wesley Martin were brought on from Webster City to talk law to his honor, and all the people in the township turned out to help identify the birds. After all the facts were presented and all the law regulating turkeys was read, 'Squire Biggs gave the turkeys to Mr. Cook and Mr. Cook save them to Mr. Martin for his foe. Justice was satisfied ahd neither Cook nor Harris had turkey. ^+~i- Sinco that time another kind of a turkey difficulty has arisen at Sioux City. A commission house there received a lot of dressed turkeys from a shipper in Odebolt, has-been an almost steady gain: Total earnings— «37;»Ki,580 37,460,270 41318138 43,102,309 87,405,473 45003080 40,000,070 From the same reports It could compare the net earnings— the amount left each year after all expenses of operating the roads have been paid— <a,nd it would Iflnd that -hero also there has been an almost steady gain: Net earnings— 810,908,422 11,801,310 12,708,4:10 14,403,100 ,„„., - — 12,328,045 *Sn2 10,108,030 1804 I^OTOIUS These tables are not complete because jn each.year one or more companies has refused to report, but -they are complete enough to show that'the Iowa railway law has not wrecked any railways nor hindered them from paying dividends. If the companies could show that they.had been injured there -would be no hesitation on their part in .making the reports the law contemplates and in getting complete statistics before the people. There has not (been a year since the law went into effect when the total business of the Iowa lines has not been larger and the uet earnings more than either were before that time, not even in this past year of general depression and business stagnation. Sam Clark is against the obituary poet: •" Most obituary poetry is a humiliation. The dead cannot defend themselves against it, and their friends hate to seem ungrateful to well meaning but foolish poet friends, and so the newspapers should protect the living and tho dead by throwing obituary poetry into the waste basket." He has no sympathy with the sentiment or the poetry of the following: •Tennyson, write no more: .Lowell, lie In thy tomb. iGarland, get behind the door, And give the grave-ybrd poet room. In the January Midland Eugene Secor, who was judge of the bee exhibit at the World's fair, explains how the medals were awarded. There was no competition and no first and second premiums awarded as at a county fair. Each exhibit meriting it was given a medal, and on this is stated the reason of tho award. English papers occasionally say a good thing about American politics. Tho London News in discussing our anxiety to interfere in behalf of the Armenians, suggests that the administration devote its en- and the same day the city meat inspector got word from somebody else in Odebolt that the birds had not died as they should to make pood eating. The birds had smothered to death, and had Been dressed after they were found dead. The meat inspector- al once went to the commission house and investigated, and a warrant was issued for the Odebolt man charging him with selling diseased meat. Ho is under arrest. 11 But the most unique turkey trouble arose in Chicago Thanksgiving day. Geo. Misolbein had been invited to dlno with his friend Cornelius Lynch, and the day before Thanksgiving sent a 10-pound turkey ahead of him to make sure of a proper Thanksgiving supply. Mr. Lynch seems to have construed Miselbein's action in making Hie gift as a thinly veiled intimation that Mr. Lynch would fail to provide a bird whose plumpness would be commensurate with the size of George's appetite. He kept cool, however, and \yhen George put in his appearance at the Lynch residence on the forenoon of Thanksgiving day the appearance of Mr. Lynch was benignant and Ms manners were unusually cordial. During the short wait that preceded the serving of the dinner, the guest and the host sat in tho parlor and talked. Politics was the to butter is perfect.

Carroll Herald: Geo. R. Cloud, formerly of this place, has bought, the business of Judge Quarton of Alsomi, Hiid will hereafter practice in Kii.-<niin nnd adjoining counties. Judge Quarton bus been one of the leading attorneys in Algohn, and his elevation to the bench leaves a good opening for Mr. Cloud. It will be George's own fault if he does not immediately take rank with the good attorneys of his district. Eturt Monitor: There was a pleasant wedding In Buffalo Fork New Year's day at the home of Mr. and Mrs. T. Bnatterfield, in which Ruth Butterfield and Will Davisott were united in marriage. The ceremony took place ut 1 o'clock, Rev. Hawn officiating, Only the near relatives were present. Will has purchased the farm formerly owned by Mrs. Clay and the young couple will go to housekeeping there soon. We are glad Will and Ruth are going to stay among us. The State Register says: THE UPPER DES MOINES in an excellent article on advertising and advertisers says that people prefer to scan the columns of a newspaper to running from store to store. Much time and worry are •saved in this way, not only for those who sell, but for those who buy. People also come to look upon those men who advertise ns leaders in business. Whatever way it Is brought about, it is true that the men who do the business do the advertising, or better still, the men who do the advertising do the business. ABOUT PUBLIC ItflRAHf B8, *to tieWs of Col, teeh-A ttifclte ]ftt« pefise that is Justified by the Poblie Ptdt. feabody Ssiys it is the Antidote (at Intellectual and Motel Poison Which Abounds. Cdl. C. tt. Gatch, the well-known Des Moines lawyer, delivered nn address before the teachers' association on the need ot public reading room* and libraries. As Algona is struggling along with a sort of reading room there is a local interest in the opinions of a man so Well qualified to speak. Col. Gatch said; The public school at public ex* pense is only justified by its necessity as a Means of qualifying the youth of the state for future citizenship. It is not enough that it makes them better church members as such, or fits them better for filling more creditably and suitably their private social relations, or for pursuing more profitably their private avocation, except only as these tend to make them better citizens and therefore of greater value to the state. The public library at public expense can only be justified by a similar neces- ity. Is there_ a similar necessity for Masstfch'tiselits Bimilai* By ftfl tfel b! the asseftbt? of this teari frf tub city krd tdwB &I it i aflthorfad to rediiire ft l6<f of ft lax not excWdiBf .1 mill dol lap, for the maifitfilnatitSS of ft public Hlmiry. fhfefetofoFe, lite tetmifititioh of the rale, Wiftiti sftme littit. had been left with the eltf Hl of town council. . ^ Y COIi. JETEPBUBN'S SPEECH. The important feature of last week's * debate on the money question in congress was Col. Pete Hepburn's denunciation of the conduct of the treasury department. He began by answering an eastern national banker, and by ; showing that none. O f the great banks of Europe will pay out gold to deplete their stock. He then asked, amidst a round of applause: " Why will not the secretary of tho treasury exorcise the same discretion. Tho ex- ercu *e of this discretion did not impair the creatt of European banka. Who dares to 3fly that the credit of this pnnntw i«rith f ,000,000 of people behind 8 i^and an un - Jjmited taxing power, would be impaired *>f cause it retused.to kneel at tho demands itftbeshylocks?' 1 .[Applause.] "Why have not the republican secretaries *>* the treasury exercised that discretion?" asked Mr. Pence (Pop,, Colo.) I have not been secretary of tho treas- - wry," replied Mr,Hepburn, hotly. " When J. am I will answer. I am as fully con' «rf??' £°wever, as I am that I am alive Wat ii the secretary of the treasury were »OW to exercise his discretion and pay gold When legitimate redemption were asked ana .refuse it to sharks and speculators the evils frooj which we suffer would cease to •pe," [Applause.j Col, Hepburn expressed the opinions pt a" very big part of the American people, 'if the silver dollar had been treated as a dollar by the treasury department when silver was romonetized, and Jf the Jaw had been obeyed re- guiriug the secretary to use it in pay, ing tihe public debt, there would be to- ergies to the atrocities in Georgia. It thinks sub J ect of the conversation. Mr. Lynch the Turks might refer us to our own darkies! and his guest differed much in their opinions, and the host is said to have .uttered some words in a seemingly half-jocose manner, which were decidedly unpleasant to George. But the guest managed to suppress his rising cholor, and to dinner he silently strode in the wake of Cornelius, Then matters ,vent well for a while. But when the time to serve the fowl arrived a turkey which was almost twice the size of tho hird that George had sent was set upon the table. It was a dish fit for the gods— so the Lynch people declared: But George thought otherwise; and he thought so loud because of the "insults" offered to his politics and his bird, he soon had matters all as he wanted them. When the officers arrived they found the whole Lynch family out on tho street, the doors and windows of their house smashed, and Miselheiu kicking things about generally. In addition to the damage he did, Georgo threatened when last seen to bring suit, to replevin his 10- pound turkey. IH THIS -MEIGHBOEHOOD.

Thrall, who retires from service as general passenger agent of 'the Northwestern road, is said to have made a comfortable fortune out of his inventions. Ho suggested the present form of ticket contract, which jnado possible and led to the limitation of coupon tickets when it became a pressing necessity. He invented and perfected the mileage ticket, the form of coupon tickets, and the simplex local one- way and excursion tickets, which bear his name, and he perfected and adopted the perforating dating stamp. More inventions and improvements of this kind hove been originated and placed in general use by him than by any other official in his line of service. Ho was with tho Northwestern when it was only a local Illinois road and has been with it ever since. The Upper Des Moines Editorial association meets at Nevada Jan. 31, and Feb. A. F. Call made a speech for the bar at Sioux City in presenting a chain and locket to Judge Van Wagenen. The locket contained pictures of the judge's wife and children, and Mr. Call said in part: "In token of our esteem, we ask you to accept this chain with a charm attached, in which you will find engraved the faces of the beloved wife and the two children dear. We have thought that this little gift was. symbolical of the highest aims of the jude-e and lawyei—to be bound to our profession with the strongest chains of unyielding devotion, to find the charm of life in the upbuilding of humanity, through the equitable administration of its laws, and beneath the covers concealed from public gaze, the faces of the dear ones nearest the heart to bring to us inspiration for the work of such a Hbrary in every town and of the state?

As an educational means the library...timy sitfely be said to be only second to the public school. city pre- the the the de- the school, suggests as the most obvious means of its acquisition, access to well selected reading matter. How many questions raised and lines of thought suggested in the public school have been carried away by thoughtful and inquiring boys and girls to be investigated and carried on in the reading- rocmrof the public library, or with the aid of books taken from it to their homes, teachers and librarians know best, but any frequenter of such a library can pretty certainly know that the number is not small. Statistics demonstrate that to be of use to people generally the public library must be absolutely free. The smallest charge for their use will deter- the large majority from becoming book borrowers. In the city of Springfield. Mass., in a single year, after the library was made free, the number of borrowers increased from eleven hundred to over seven thousand, and .the circulation of books from 41,000 to 164,000. By all means let there be a free pub- he library in every town and city of Iowa. • i ^ eabod y ln i Paper recently published in the Forum, on "Formative Influences," uses this very suggestive and significant language: "Few men have been more conversant with young life than I have been for more than half a century, and my observation concurs with my own consciousness in convincing me that the shaping and directing forces and influences which The circuit judje of Bay county, Michigan, has ordered the grand jury to find indictments against the supervisors of that county for not having property assessed for taxation at its full 'value, according .to statute.

If early habits and impressions begotten of early influences and surroundings have so much to do with the formation of character, the value of a well selected library gratuitously open to the public as a part of the environment of the young, can hardly be overestimated. As the mind expands under the educational methods and influences of the public school, like all nature, it abhors a vacuum,"and refuses to remain empty. How shall it be filled? Now is the seed time, what shall the harvest be? Now the mind is most im- pressable and impressions most lasting; what shall the impressions be? Shall they be the tares sown by the young- arab of the street, or"by the gambler/ the drunkard maker, or the "strange i WO i m j» n " Q1wh ,? s . e u " ste PS take hold on hell?" Shall they be imprints of the yellow back dime novel," or the no less sensational, blood curdlingand pestilent literature of popular journalism or even worse, if possible, the professedly obscene literature intended for tho purlieus of vice and as guide books to them—I say, if possible, because of the possibility that by the openness and grossness of its indecency, such literature will often disgust and repel rather than fascinate and attract. What better antidote for all this moral and intellectual poison than the counter attractions of a well selected reference and circulating library of choice books, with the addition of a few high grade magazines and nowpapers and a reading-room open day and night to tho public.
